Description of Medical internships in India for 16-18 year olds
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Our partners behind this vacation promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travelers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
There are challenges associated with volunteer travel, and these can make accessible travel difficult. However, we are very keen to chat with travelers with specific needs to see if we can make a trip possible.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

We are passionate about encouraging our travelers to be kind to the environment as they travel. Each participant receives advice about how to care for the environment whilst they are away. This includes water usage, how to avoid single use plastic, and electricity usage.
We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us, and clean free water is always available. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.
We emphasise the importance of showing respect for local people and their customs in our briefing material. Interns receive a full orientation on arrival and receive 2 lectures, during their time in India, which covers aspects of Indian culture.
Participants will work alongside permanent staff, forming close bonds and getting an insight into real life in India. Our policy is to send people out in small groups or individually. This minimises the environmental and social impact that the participants have on the destination and helps them to integrate into the local community.
The coordinators on the ground are Indian and have real insight and knowledge about the country and the local area. Interns will gain real insight into life in India and will eat locally sourced food cooked authentically by an Indian cook. When eating out, local restaurants are supported and this helps to promote tourism to local businesses. All tour guides are local.
